Kind regards

I have in fact wondered what "Register true" was for, thanks for that

The question that next comes up in my mind is, does anyone know where in
the world did a
"name" like that come from?  If it were me naming that feature I would
called it
something like... "Align Baselines".

Is there a story or reason behind it?  If it's not a good one, I vote
changing the
name, because in 6 months or a year I'll have forgotten what it does
(chances are slim
I'll ever have to use that feature but still).  I'm a big fan of naming
things after their
functions if and when it makes sense to do so.

Thank you in advance.

       Use LO's help to search for this term. It answers your question.
Hint, it has to do with how newspapers have been printed.

Strange, it seems that you did not read what is contained in the link above nor does it seem that you searched for the term in LO's help. It has noting to do with what predates what. Well you would know this if you had done your assignment. This term is in current use today.
     So what is this strike 2, or is it strike 3, you're out?  ;-)
